Looking for parents of Daniel J. Mann born 1802 in Georgia died 1875 in Baker County, Florida.

+6 votes
Old family lore states that Daniel J. Mann's father was William Mann Sr. R.S. of Tattnall/Appling Counties, Georgia. YDNA work done on myself and another direct male descendant shows no such YDNA connection to William Mann Sr. R.S.

I am currently working on connecting Daniel J. Mann to the larger John/Luke/Thomas Mann families of Bryan and Liberty Counties, Georgia. My earliest record for Daniel J. Mann shows that he was in Bryan County circa 1819 so the timeframe fits along with the geography.

I also have record of a Daniel Mann who fought in the War of 1812 (Georgia Militia) who died the summer of 1815 in Camden County, Georgia. Could this be the father of Daniel J. Mann?

Anyone out there know any more about the John/Luke/Thomas Mann and Daniel Mann of Camden County lineages?

Many Thanks to All,

Shannon J. Mann

I did find a record that Luke Mann was an immigrant from Ireland.  I think John and Thomas may have come to Georgia from Abbeville SoCarolina.  John served in revolutionary war and was awarded a lot of land grants in Georgia.


But there are LOTS of john Manns.  I've looked at wills for many Mann (or Man) families.
Check the south prong cematary, my grandpa funstan Mann his dad was John Mann and Daniel Mann was my great great grampa

Birth: Feb. 28, 1802
Georgia, USA
Death: Mar. 1, 1875
Florida, USA
Daniel James Mann was the husband of Louvicy Barber. He was the son of William Mann, Sr. & his first wife. Daniel was a Methodist Lay Pastor. He started a church for early settlers. His grave has both his original stone & a newer one. The inscription of the original reads:"HERE IS ONE SLEEPING IN FAITH AND LOVE WITH HOPE THAT******IN HEAVEN ABOVE". A large crack was running across inscription but it might say;"IS ASSURED". Daniel was father to William James, Ledia Ann, Sarah A., Benjamin Daniel, Archabald J. "Archie", Louvicy E., Henry H., Mary Jane, Jackson D., Issac B., & Elinor Mann. Several of his children are buried in the same cemetery with Daniel & Louvicey.

Thank You Frank for the information from Mrs. Rucks concerning the Daniel J. Mann Family. I do have most of this already but it is worth another look. As you can see from the above, most researchers have made the link between Daniel J. Mann (as son) and William Mann R.S. (as father). My YDNA results (confirmed via another descendant of Daniel J. Mann) point in another (as of yet determined) direction for Daniel J. Mann's biological father. Furthermore when I conducted a paper records search before taking the YDNA test I could not find any solid evidence of Daniel J. Mann as the son (biological or adopted) of William Mann Sr. R.S. I have seen evidence of a Daniel U. Mann born 1814 as the biological son of William Mann R.S. however.

Here is a link from Family Tree.org https://familysearch.org/photos/artifacts/5365520 Its a discussion I reference to Daniel J Mann's (my 3x grandfather) and his mounted calvary service in the Seminole Wars. In the article it references set one point he had temporarily moved his family to Georgia. It's a very interesting article and may help link him to Georgia family. Hope this helps.
Hi Cousin Gina :)  This is Shannon J. Mann, the poster of the original question. Thanks for digging up that reference on familysearch, that was actually written by myself a few years ago and is on my Ancestry.com page. Mr. Gene Barber - historian, now deceased from Baker County, FL had written an earlier version which I added a little more information to as I found it.

Getting information on Daniel J. Mann prior to 1819 has proven difficult. 1819 is the earliest record I have for him and at that time he was in Bryan County, Georgia. Daniel was also in Bryan County in 1824 so Bryan County is probably important to him as he also appears as head of household there in the 1830 federal census.

Many years of transition between Georgia and Florida happened after this period. I'm sure that he crossed the St. Mary's River many times during war and probably to see family (and family in-law).

I am continuing to look into the early years in Bryan County (and adjacent counties) for clues to his deeper past. I hope to one day report back on this forum what I have found.

Thank you,

Shannon J. Mann

Group, I wanted to pass on some recent DNA findings per Daniel J Mann.

As of January 2018, Y-DNA testing of a documented descendant of the prominent Luke Mann Family of Bryan/Liberty Co. Georgia has also revealed that Daniel J Mann was not a blood member of that Mann line despite living very close to Luke Mann's descendants circa 1820.

Thank you,

Shannon J Mann
